Are billboard vinyls good for pond liners?

We know a lot of people that have used them for pond liners and love them. Please note that since they were once a billboard advertisement first, there may be a chance that there will be pin sized holes in the vinyls. We recommend Flex Seal tape as a way to patch any holes if need be: https://www.flexsealproducts.com/product/flex-tape/
